This is a convenient hotel that many business people use as it is close to the airport and industrial areas. Better hotels can be found in Nairobi city centre but when you have to travel to work each day, the one hour plus to get in and out effectively rules them out and this is a safe viable option with views across the national park (avoid the side overlooking construction of a new highway)
Staff are friendly but generally not very efficient and you may have to ask twice; be it asking for your food bill, an ironing board or someone to fix the noise on the fridge.
The food is however very good and gym facilities are also of a good standard. I have stayed here 3 times between August and October and to be fair i have noticed improvements both in the service and the views from the dining terrace. My first two visits i saw no animals but on the final visit i saw many giraffe a few hundred feet away while eating breakfast. The introduction of a watering hole close by is no doubt starting to pay dividends in this respect.
I believe this hotel is sometimes referred to as 5 star but it is no more than a competent 4 star most suited to business people.
